# Bend/kink a long square like a ribbon

I have an request for assistance. It's a bit embarrassing as it might be for you a simple question but I am not a native English speaker so I don't know on what specific terms to search either. The long square itself is in a 45 degree angle (see image 2). I want to know how can I kink it on a certain point and then bend it a certain degree?

I added another picture for the front view, I'm sorry for the confusion.

• Do you know (1) edit mode, (2) loop cuts, (3) rotating on local axes ? Commented Jul 24 at 15:10
• Yes but the problem is that the loop cut is in line with long square, the cut needs be horizontal on this 45 degree long square if you will, now it's also 45 degrees. Commented Jul 24 at 15:17
• I hope I'm understanding your issue correctly, but I think using a mirror modifier with a mirror object can get you what you want. Docs Commented Jul 24 at 15:22
• Oh yes Leander I am getting very close to the desired result!! Commented Jul 24 at 15:51
• Jakemoyo thanks for your suggestions! @Leander please formulate your solution in an answer so that I can accept it! And if you like it, a demonstration of how you would smooth the bend. Ty kindly all fellas in here. Commented Jul 24 at 19:56

If you want to add a cut at an arbitrary angle, use the knife cut tool. K

To remove an edge, select the edge and press X > Dissolve Edges / Edge Loops

To modify and edge, you can slide the vertices along existing edges with GG or ShiftV.

To rotate around an edge, ...

1. select the edge and shift-box select (B) the other edges. Then choose active element as the pivot point and Normal as the Transform Orientation. The selection will rotate around the active edge (highlighted in a lighter yellow shade).
2. Rotate around the x-Normal of the edge. RX

To create a smoother transition at the bend, select the edge and bevel it. CtrlB
